This kind of stuff is driving me mad. In the states last week, international viewers had better coverage of the Rolex 24 than we did. Madness!!!

Nurburgring has a bespoke BOP for GT3s to slow them down. Bathurst could do the same. All it takes is a HP reduction. Much preferable to questioning whether GT3s belong there or moving away from such an iconic circuit.

Weather forecast looks like it will be cooler for race day by a few degrees so that should help but there’s an 80% chance of rain. Seems if it will rain it will be later in the afternoon

Judging by the amount of incidents, it seems drivers need to be reminded this is a circuit that needs to be treated rather than some of the modern circuits where you can get away with more

And instead it looks like the Evo cars for 2020 got more power but also more weight. That doesn't seem like the right direction for this track. That homologation is for GT3 not the track itself like VLN did for their runners.

And Renger had a decent point earlier, is that extra tenth or hundredth worth it with risking the car that much more? If you wreck, you aren't racing here. It's that simple, incidents aren't small slap on new boots and go. They destroy the car. Also, I didn't know he's an insurance guy off track, definitely gives you an idea he'd be more cautious. But then he has won a few endurance races so maybe he knows a bit.

Yes, but VLN has 10 Races a year and every race are minor tweaks on the BoP. Bathurst is one time a year. That makes it very hard to create a good and fair BoP

Yes, I think they were pushing too hard for the conditions, but on the flip side, Canto has raced in 21 Bathurst 1000s.

Yeah not the shootout but at least the full race will be shown on FTA from start to finish, starting at 5:45am AEDT through to 18.00 on FTA Channel 7 Mate
It is also available to Aussies by live stream through 7Plus Streaming Service

I think the heat would have had something to do with it and the incidents in general.... over 38C ambient and well over 50C track temps yesterday, well above any previous Bathurst weekend I can recall.

Just found Bathurst is on the MotorTrend app this afternoon and the wife has cooking classes all day as well. Now if it was just above 45 here and could sit outside with a cigar as well.

When it crashes 20 times in an hour, you can switch over to youtube.

Surprisingly I've watched it for hours on Apple TV no problem. Although, there's no audio right now so who knows
